How to convert a Basement

Not only you can build a new cellar underneath your house, but under your front and rear garden, you can even expand it. This will give you an amazing amount of space in case you want to build a swimming pool or a large space. A basement conversion will have the following steps -

  • Excavating the space (in case you already have the basement).
  • Adding additional structural support
  • Waterproofing the space
  • Adding plumbing, gas and electrics
  • Adding flooring and plastering the walls
  • Decorating, plus adding lighting and heating

Will I need planning permission?

If you transform an existing basement, you would not require planning approval because you are making structural improvements. You are more likely to require planning permission if, on the other hand, you are excavating a new basement.

Factors affecting the Basement Conversion Cost

With such a grand project, the total amount you will pay can be affected by the following factors:

  • Excavating or Converting - It would be much more costly to excavate an entirely new cellar than to convert an existing cellar.
     
  • Size of area to be converted - The larger your new basement area, the higher the cost of your cellar conversion.
     
  • The new purpose of the cellar: The intent of your basement conversion will influence the degree of renovation. The more comprehensive the renovations of your basement are, the higher the price you can pay.
     
  • Quality of materials used: Higher quality materials are more durable and long-lasting but will incur extra costs.
     
  • Extra structural support needed - You may need additional structural support to make your basement fit for purpose which will also increase the overall basement conversion cost.
     
  • Adding decoration, flooring, lighting and heating - Without proper lighting and heating, basements are dark and damp.
     
  • Current condition of Basement - Basements that are in bad condition would need extra work to get them at an additional price to a livingable level.
